|Offer date||Nov. 20, 2016|
Tanner McKee received an offer from the Huskers on Nov. 20, 2016.
“The coaches are awesome and I relate to them well. And the atmosphere at Nebraska is really cool," McKee told The World-Herald.
McKee is technically a 2018 recruit, but he's more like a member of the 2020 class. That's because McKee will take a two-year mission after high school in keeping with his Mormon faith.
He was teammates for one season in 2015 with Tyjon Lindsey, a member of the Huskers' 2017 signing class.
McKee is considered to be a pro-style quarterback by the major recruiting services. He threw for 3,552 yards and 36 touchdowns, while also running for 539 yards and 15 more touchdowns as a junior in 2016.
He attends the same high school that produced former Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez.
McKee posted a SPARQ score of 95.28 at The Opening Regional in Seattle in May. That included a 4.94-second 40-yard dash, 4.12-second 20-yard shuttle, 37-foot kneeling powerball toss and 32.1-inch vertical jump.
McKee then earned an invite to the Elite 11 Finals after a standout performance at The Opening Regional in Houston in February 2017.
